Over four seasons, Black Lightning has become one of the best offerings on The CW. Created by Trevor Von Eeden and Tony Isabella; the series features Cress Williams as Black Lightning, aka Jefferson Pierce. Pierce used to be one of the essential superheroes who took retirement to be with his family.
However, when criminals overrun the neighborhood, the retired superhero decides to end criminal tyranny and once again becomes Black Lightning. The series has received a positive reception from critics and audiences alike.
Black Lightning Season 5: Date of Release
The fourth season of Black Lightning premiered on the 8th of February 2021 on The CW. Moreover, the season finale premiered on the 24th of May 2021. The dedicated fans of Black Lightning will be significantly disheartened as Black Lightning has officially concluded on The CW.
There hasn’t been any revelation as to why the creators and network axed the series. Nevertheless, there is a highly likely chance that the steady decline of ratings is the primary reason why the fourth season was the finale.
Salim Akil, the creator of Black Lightning, said that he’s very proud of the team of Black Lightning to put up an epic work.
The epic finale to the journey of the Pierce family
The critics liked the satisfying wrapping up of the superhero series. The journey that Black Lightning endeavored has been nothing less than fascinating. Jefferson incurred new lows in the final season, and the hero had to put everything he passed on the line to defeat Tobias Whale.
Like Marvin Jone III playing Tobias Whale, the cast of the series said that the series couldn’t get more of a fitting ending. The series embodied power and hope by voicing cultural, social, and political issues that people face in America throughout the years!
